Msgr. Walter C. Orlowski Rec Center

The Rec Center* is a 17,000 sq ft  two-tiered facility that promotes well-being for all ages, designed to enhance the quality of your life. A place to welcome all generations with opportunities for play, fitness, restoration and healing. A place to go after Mass, before Mass, in between the week to restore yourself, to have fun, to reconnect and heal in a community of believers. Individualized and Group Programs for Youth, Teens, Adults, Seniors. The Center is named in honor of Msgr. Walter C. Orlowski (1954-2020),  who launched the Rec Center in 2018 and whose vision was to create an intergenerational gathering place for wellness in body, mind, and spirit. Msgr. Walter served as Pastor of St. Matthew for 26 years. Under his leadership, a new Parish Center was built and dedicated in 1996, and in 2004, the Church underwent a major expansion to allow families to more fully participate in Mass.
